The MPhil in Management Science & Operations (MSO) is an intensive nine-month programme designed for students who wish to prepare for or explore their potential for a career as a business school academic. Many MSO students continue to a PhD at Cambridge Judge Business School or other leading business schools.
The MSO programme introduces students to cutting edge research and methods in the fields of Operations Management, Innovation, and Marketing, with a methodological focus on quantitative reasoning. Applicants are required to have degree-level knowledge of calculus and linear algebra, as provided by most economics and engineering degrees.
There are a number of scholarships available to MPhil in Management Science & Operations students, ranging from ESRC scholarships, University of Cambridge and College scholarships, to corporate research funding. Find out more
The solid quantitative foundations that I developed in my first degree are an excellent preparation for an academic career in a business school. But doing research is very different from taking taught courses. You need to develop the right mindset and the right capacity and that is exactly what the MSO programme at Cambridge provides. For me, the stimulating and highly personalised learning experience of the MSO programme was an invaluable step in my transition on to a PhD here at Cambridge.
